that killed four americans including the top u.s. diplomat in libya was planned in advance. we're also talking with the people behind the controversial anti-muslim film igniting protests that the attackers may have used for cover. we're also watching an important political dimension to this story. mitt romney's immediate criticism of president obama's international policies. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> dramatic developments unfolding. let's begin with some important new developments in the attacks on u.s. facilities in both cairo, egypt. and benghazi, libya. u.s. sources now tell cnn the attack in benghazi was actually planned in advance and the perpetrators used a protest outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi there simply as a diversion. four americans died including the united states ambassador to libya chris stevens. our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, has been working her sources to get a better idea on exactly what happened. our senior international correspondent nic robertson is monitoring the search for who's responsible. and our pentagon corres

is when then-president george w. bush ordered the u.s.-led invasion of iraq, march 2003. it was also the month when it was ordered that the flag-draped coffins of american service members killed abroad could not be photographed when those coffins got back to the united states. that change in policy under george w. bush was a source of anger and controversy. it is why coffins were sometimes used in anti-iraq war protests to visually represent those real caskets of americans killed in the war that the bush administration would not allow the country to see. the bush administration banned the media from showing those dignified transfer ceremonies as the invasion of iraq started in 2003. and they kept the policy in place throughout george w. bush's time in office. as the country waged two of the longest wars in our history. it was not until the new president replaced george w. bush that the ban was rescinded. on thursday, february 26th, 2009, just five weeks after president barack obama was inaugurated, the defense department lifted the ban and one week after the ban was lifted, the follo
in the u.s. government secrets torture and rendition program. we will speak with alfred mccoy here in madison. he is author of "torture and impunity." >> there is an absolute ban on torture for a very good reason. torture taps into the deepest recesses of the human consciousness where creation and destruction exist. with a capacity for cruelty and kindness to exist. it has a powerful, perverse appeal. and once it starts, but the perpetrators and the powerful who order them, let it spread. it spreads out of control. >> all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. road in the madison, wisconsin. and this one person has been killed in pakistan as protesters fill the streets across several cities in what is expected to be a massive day of action against the u.s. made film "innocence of muslims." the pakistani government declared friday a public holiday to allow people to demonstrate against the film, which mocks the muslim prophet mohammed. pakistan shut down cell phone service in major cities as officials moved

for next week. and the s&p is up a fraction after having been sharply lower earlier. now at 1407. meantime, the democrats are kicking off their convention today as election day is a little over two months away. with that in mind, looking at how the markets have done between labor day and election day traditionally. in the months leading up to the re-election of president george w. bush in 2004 it was the best period for the markets among the three most recent election cycles. so as we kick off another cycle, should we expect the same thing? >> we're looking at it. let's get to "closing bell exchange." we have brian belske, alan nukman, chris costantinos and steve leasem steve li esman with us. >> there's a very good chance we give back a little bit of these summer gains that have surprised most investors, as most investors remember back in june, july, were so bearish. market ran in their faces a little bit. remember as bill said at the top of the broadcast, september traditionally is the worst month of the year. would not be surprised if we see some weakness. our call is for a rally before
are tracking a busy morning here. we have spoke to folks on the ground outside of the u.s. embassy in yemen. basically the situation is under control. there is couple of thousand of people outside of the embassy and a thousand yemen security fores trying to keep it under control. you have a security house in front of the main building. some of the demonstrators got in and tore down items and did damage but no shots were fired and no injuries were incurred and still a fluid situation there. and as you know in cairo, again through the night there was rock throwing and tear gas shooting by the police against the protestors, this is after the big violence we saw earlier in the week there. there is a call for calm from the president of the egypt today and calls for a peaceful protest and it is not turning out that way in cairo. that happened in cairo and yemen. it is believed to be airing or the distribution of the internet of the u.s. made film, film made in the u.s. critical of the muslim prophet mohammed and nais one motivator for the violence that we saw on tuesday in benghazi in libya. that
and the state department of the 1920s and the 1930s showed admirable tolerance for the eccentricities of george f. kennan. i always thought george f. kennan resigned from the foreign service more times than anybody else in the state department would always come back and say don't do it. .. technologies available to us. it was just making the point that if you ask about -- look at history through aviation, you would say history has not changed much in the last 60 years. we still fly at exactly the same speed. on airliners that, if anything, are less comfortable than they were then. if you look at the speed of communication, and the declining cost of communication, that is a totally different world. from the world when the first jetliners were developed. and in that sense, yes, it looks like history has speeded up. but i'm going to be flying to england next week, and i think i'm going to have the sense, as i fly there that history is moving very slowly indeed. >> john gaddis is the author of this book "george kennan: an american life." he joins us here at the book philosophy. thank you so much.
alert, u.s. diplomatic posts under siege in what has become the new epicenter for violence and extreme anti-american protests. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. the new middle east flashpoint this hour is pakistan where angry mobs have made it their goal to attack the u.s. embassy in islamabad for a second day. turning on authorities, saying they're no better than americans because they stopped the mob from reaching the embassy. many in the outraged crowd turning rocks into weapons, police retaliating with tear gas. some officers even throwing the stones back. and in the northern cities, angry demonstrators throwing a u.s. flag with an image of president obama as a dog onto flames chanting "down with america." one thing the u.s. and pakistani governments to take action behind the film maker behind the video, and if they do not, they threaten suicide attacks on u.s. consulates everywhere. what you're seeing may be the tip os the iceberg -- tip of the iceberg. and adding fuel to that fire, the pakistan government has called for a national holiday tomorrow for what the
suppression is happening not just with voter i.d.s but on the day of election. there is a lot of voter monitors. do you think that that is actually going to have an impact? >> i think it can have an impact. the world of politics and campaigns that i've been involved in, occasions, on example, when people have put people who look like custom agents walking around the polling places and places like orange county, we sued them and we won in that case. >> jennifer: to intimidate voters. >> absolutely to. discourage voters. that will be tried. there's been a call -- of a million volunteers among the tea party types to do what they can to push voters away from the polls. you would think in america, we would be about trying to get everybody in the world to vote. hopefully standing in line for hours if they had to. but that's not the way some of these people want to play the game. they want to reduce the number of people who are casting votes. they don't want racial minorities to vote at all. and it's that voter suppre
and the government should give to them. >> the number quoted by mitt romney in the address is correct. u.s. census bureau data published by the "the wall street journal" reports that 49% of american households receive some type of government benefit in mid 2011. that's up from 30% in the 1980s. social security benefits, 16.2% of americans receive them. medicare coverage, 14.9% receive it. food stamps, one in seven households get them. income tax, americans in 2010 who paid none, 46%. up from 27% 20 years ago. unemployment, 23 million unemployed or underemployed today. question, the obama team is trying to spin the video as meaning romney only cares about the top 53%. not the 47% who get government benefits. is this damaging to governor romney? tim? >> absolutely damaging to governor romney. because he is writing off a portion of the population. it is not just that he is talking down to them, like barack obama did four yeersz ago, when he talked -- years ago when he talked about the bitter clingers who clinged to guns and religion, and obama says we can win them over and romney is saying i can't wi

of the most -- a dramatic chapter in the contemporary u.s. foreign policy. one of the hardest challenges i think for our decision makers is the relationship with iran as the non-relationship with iran as we might say. i felt we might begin our discussion with -- explain to our listeners will why and how you wrote the book. some of the methodological issues so that we get that the state. before we get into the visit ali told stories of these 30 years of the u.s. iran engagement from the perspective of our sort of military to military interaction so, i wonder if we can just start with tell us why he wrote the book and how considering that you are a government historian but this book was really done through a different methodology. >> guest: the genesis started as a dissertation many years ago back in the 90's in the reagan foreign policy in the persian gulf to get one of the catalysts for me as far as an interest in the region itself was my father had been the u.s. central command -- commander from 85 to 88, the u.s. military commander for the middle east. obviously that sort of spurred inte

communications, particularly the terrorist communications that might involve u.s. persons, in other words communications at the one in here in the united states. remember i told you on the 9/11 we began to fight the war and we've got to play defense? as director of the nsa you have a fair amount of authority. you can kind of dial things a little bit, get more aggressive. you can't be haphazard about this, you certainly have to tell congress, but you have the authority. guess what did about 11:00 in the morning on september 11th? if i had the authority to ratchet up, i ratcheted it up. i called george tenet remember the of the committee, also the house intelligence committee said i'm ratcheting up. george comegys ratcheting it up, getting a bit more aggressive, getting high probability we would intercept those kind of messages the would tell us about the next attack. so i tell them george this, george calls me i was with some of the president and vice president. i told them what you are doing. george was making a joke. she said i told them and you're going to jail, mike. the president and
's still time. and i say, wait for what? wait until when? >> reporter: israel wants the u.s. to commit to a so-called redline with iran. if iran steps over it, they face military action against their nuclear sites. >> those international community who refuse to put redlines before iran don't have a moral right to place a red light before israel. >> reporter: israel wants u.s. support because at some point its own air force won't be able to hit iran's nuclear sites in increasingly hardens underground bunkers. with two months to election day, the u.s. administration isn't anxious to get specific. >> the american people know that the president has said unequivocally he will not allow iran to obtain a nuclear weapon. i'm not going to get into how you unpack exactly what, who, how, when. >> reporter: but not setting a line can also be risky while negotiations go on. >> on the other side of this is if you don't set very clear limits to iran's behavior, you can go on indefinitely. >> reporter: during his recent trip to israel, defense secretary leon panetta was very aware iran has moved ahead
that is. a senior law enforcement official telling fran townsend the fbi wanted the u.s. military to provide perimeter support in benghazi, protection, in other words, but that request was not granted. fran's a former white house homeland security advisor. she served in the george w. bush administration, currently she sits on the cia external advisory panel and recently visited libya with her employer, mcandrews and forbes. also joining us, former fbi assistant director, tom fuentes, who has extensive experience investigating attacks on americans overseas, and former cia officer, bob baer. so fran, so the fbi sought military protection to go into benghazi. why didn't they get it? >> well, the answer to that question, i think, is not really clear. so it's not unusual, when you want to set up a security perimeter, you may look to the host country. if the host country is unable or unwilling to provide it, we don't know what the answer to that is, y may ask if you think you need it for u.s. military support, but that's got to go through a process. it needs state department and nsc sup

at the scene of a bloody shootout that claimed the life the u.s. border patrol agent brian terry. william la jeunesse has been following the story from the very beginning and he joins us now live from los angeles. william, what did this long-awaited report actually find? >> reporter: well the inspector general's review revealed a stunning litany of what was known and ignored. atf agent and the u.s. attorney's office knew who was buying the guns, where they were going and they were killing people in mexico. they had the evidence to seize the weapons and make arrests but dozens of u.s. officials chose to do nothing. that irresponsibility according to the inspector general michael horowitz existed up and down the chain of command in "fast and furious" and lesser extent in a small and earlier operation, wide receiver. >> we concluded that both operation wide receiver and operation "fast and furious" were seriously flawed and supervised irresponsibly by atf's phoenix field division, by the u.s. attorney's office, and by atf headquarters. most significantly in their failure to adequately consider
's get to work. the four victims of the assault on the u.s. diplomatic mission in benghazi, libya, were honored today at andrews air force base. coffins carrying the bodies of the slain diplomats arrived in the united states on a military plane from libya. president obama spoke of the sacrifice made by the foreign service workers. the president was joined by his national security team including secretary of state hillary clinton. overseas protests spread across 17 different countries in the middle east as anger mounted over a strange and mysterious and very low-budget film denigrating the prophet muham d muhammad. in cairo, one protester was killed today in a clash with police blocking the way to the u.s. embassy. we'll be monitoring the events in the middle east and will bring you developments immediately. back here, there has been a key question since the romney/ryan ticket launched their attack on the obama administration's handling of the events in libya and egypt. that question is, what would they is done differently? and the answer, according to the romney/ryan campaign, is if we

at the obama administration's evolving attempts to explain who's responsible for the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. is the confusion becoming a political liability? and mitt romney says he has a little secret. you're going to hear him predict he'll win a state most experts think is safely in president obama's column. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're down to just 39 days until the presidential election. in about 20 minutes the president begins a series of fundraisers right here in washington. those are the only public events on his calendar today. yet this is the same day the president didn't have time for a face-to-face meeting with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who's in new york. instead they spoke by phone. here's cnn's white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: wolf, the white house always stresses that the president and prime minister netanyahu are in touch frequently. they downplay any daylight between the two leaders. but they didn't meet face-to-face this week. and so one phone call is getting a lot of attention. p
from obtaining a nuclear weapon. prime minister netanyahu has been pressuring the u.s. to lay down a so-called red line on iran that would prompt military action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white house downplays any friction between the two leaders and brushes aside criticism that there was no face-to-face meeting. >> the president has met with and spent time on the phone with prime minister netanyahu more than with any leader since he took office. and that is reflective of the importance of and the closeness of the relationship between the united states and israel. >> reporter: the white house would not say if the two leaders talked about the so-called red line, which of course is a key issue. and no specifics on how they will stop iran
at this tranquil setting here on coney island beach. s because it looks phenomenal. but below the water surface we have threat of rip currents. it's not just here. to goes from maine to miami. the reason why is we have tropical storm leslie churning in the atlantic as that enhances the wave action along the eastern seaseaboard, it will ca the water to pile up in some places. when that water piles up on the shoreline, alex, it doesn't stay anchored there. it has to go back into deeper water. when that occurs at a quick, accelerated rate, it actually cuts a groove right through the sandbar. those grooves cause the water to move very quickly, at times up to eight feet per second. that could knock you off your feet, pull you into deeper water. that's when panic sets in. 80% of all lifeguard rescues have to do with rip currents, and they were very busy yesterday along the jersey shore, in fact, rescuing three people in a short amount of time. people aren't supposed to get in the water today. you see a couple out here. we may have a few rescues before the day is out. >> really awesome explanation on rip
